UNStudio and Heerim will completely redevelop the current homes into a “new and future-oriented eco-design” that adds over 1,500 new apartments by replacing the 35-story towers with 50-story towers. All parking will be tucked underground to make room for a new garden landscape. The buildings are south-oriented and glazed to maximize natural light and cross ventilation .

The six gardens include: the Curiosity Forest, Excitement Garden, Alluring Urban-ground, Contemplation Cloud, Playfulness Park and Longevity Fields. The development is also further divided into four circular themed zone to create a total of 24 neighborhoods, all with access to greenery, lively streets, and easy connections to mass transportation, educational centers, and recreation facilities. Six “iconic towers” clustered at the center of the site house facilities catering to luxury urban living, art, culture, and healthy lifestyles. + UNStudio + Heerim Images via UNStudio
